Data is everywhere. Over the past decade, the term data has evolved from something only thrown about in Tech circles to the next buzzword that needs to be in every presentation. Here at Electronic Arts, our goal is to use data to help bring about the best possible experiences to our players, both within and outside of the game. To do so, we need amazing thinkers and leaders to help bring us to the cutting edge of analytics, while guiding us through each new evolution of data.
The Studios Data Insights Mobile and Asia group is hiring a Sr Data Scientist to do exploratory and foundational work for our Europe and Middle East, Africa Portfolio, with a focus on our Chocolate Panda studio. You will work with game designers and producers as they are data engineers, so versatility, persistence, entrepreneurship, and passion are keys to becoming a successful contributor. We exist in a world where tasks and measures aren't easily defined by product managers or scrums and where a project's cadence can have defined deadlines or be as vague as knowing a game's possible launch date years in the future, so our data scientists and data analysts must have strong organizational skills. The biggest and single most important aspect that we look for in aspiring colleagues is intellectual curiosity, people who love the joy of discovery, in ending the day knowing a little bit more than when they woke up. You will report to a Senior Director of Analytics.
We look for PhDsor relevant Masters degrees in fields such as computer science, mathematics and the hard sciences, or quantitatively based degrees in social fields, such as quant marketing, sociology, and economics. To be effective, members must have experience working with big data stores, wrangling complex data sets, and setting up data processing workflows. We ask that you are accomplished in a modern open source data science language like Python, What's more, you will partner extensively with our studios in the region and across the globe, so strong presentation skills and an ease in communicating complex methodological ideas into easily digestible points is a must.
Gaming is changing. Over the next few years, that change is going to accelerate and without the proper knowledge and toolsets, many developers will struggle to keep up with it. Our job on this team is to ensure that we not only keep pace but become the drivers of that evolution, to help EA lead into the future. We are excited to be a part of this and hope you will be, too.
